It's Complicated is a 2009 romantic comedy directed and written by Nancy Meyers. The film stars Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin in lead roles. The movie is produced by Meyers and Scott Rudin and features wonderful performances by the lead actors. The story revolves around Jane Adler (played by Meryl Streep), a successful bakery owner and divorcee, who gets involved in a complicated love affair with her ex-husband Jake (played by Alec Baldwin) and an architect named Adam (played by Steve Martin). Jane and Jake had been divorced for ten years after he had an affair, and he has since remarried to a much younger woman, causing him to feel emasculated and plagued with feelings of mid-life crisis.

The movie begins with Jane taking Jake's son back to their house to drop him off after college. There, they begin to reminisce about their past life, including their marriage, and it is evident that there are still feelings between them. Later, Jane attends their son's graduation and ends up sleeping with Jake, but they decide that it was a mistake and promise not to repeat it.

Jane, after Jake tells her about his affair with Agness, looks for someone else and meets Adam. He is a respectable architect and is building a new house for her, which leads to a complicated and rather hilarious triangle between her, Jake, and Adam. They all have fantastic chemistry and work so well together, making the movie an enjoyable watch.

As the movie advances, Jane finds herself in a situation where she is trying to make a crucial decision about her love life. She has to choose between a complicated relationship with her ex-husband, whom she knows well but had a failed marriage with, and Adam, who is new and presents a chance to start over. Her three children also complicate things due to their different views on their mother's love life.

The movie is filled with humor, heartwarming moments, and awkward situations. It shows how complicated love can be and the different paths one can take in life. The storyline is well-written, and the characters are well-rounded, complex, and relatable. The star actors' performances are exceptional, making it easy to connect with their characters and be sucked into their lives.

Overall, It's Complicated is a delightful romantic comedy with a simple, yet thoroughly enjoyable storyline. The movie showcases the complexities of relationships in a lighthearted manner, making it a fun watch for anyone looking for a charming, heartfelt comedy.
